Quoted from fosaisu:
I found time to listen to the whole two hour podcast (which was evidently recorded several weeks ago, as DP was still in the process of picking up the parts). If you’re interested in hearing Barry present the plan going forward, jump to 1:29.
Key points on Barry's plan to get TBL back into production:
The parts are now in a storage facility
DP is in the process of leasing a new production facility
Have nearly full parts for 25-50 games, lots of partial parts beyond that
Not concerned about sourcing parts for future games (including potentially from ARA, which did the sheet metal parts)
Early production will most/all be sold to new buyers to generate funds, then DP will start interspersing production of games for EAs alongside production for new sales
DP will need to make 400-500 games total in order to get games to all EAs (meaning sale of 265-365 games to new buyers funds production of 135 games for EAs)
Barry is confident there’s a market for 500 more TBLs at $12.5k
No statement on when production will start, Barry hopes "very soon"
Initially, game will be built by Barry, Gus (sp?), and a few volunteers
Production will slowly ramp up, DP will then hire people
Barry says DP has funding in place to see project through, is “sure they can pull it off”
Target is to have all EAs receive games by end of 2020 (requiring avg 8 games/week)
Will sell exclusively through Cointaker in US, through DP in Europe and rest of world
DP is considering adding a cheaper “Pro” model at some point, no decision made
“No preorders this time”
Other items of interest:
Barry's apology and commitment to get the EAs their games is at 1:57
Per Barry, 55 games were initially shipped to EAs, 135 EAs are still owed games
Barry couldn’t bring himself to admit that it was a lie to say ARA wasn’t shipping games due to board problems (he repeatedly called it an “excuse”)
Barry does not get into the details of why DP lost the court case, or what specifically the ruling was going to be (understandable, settlements often limit the parties from talking about the case)
In general, Barry did not have a tremendous amount to say about DP's past history, mainly agreeing or disagreeing with the interviewers statements of fact. He did seem to want to say something about the soundtrack issues (all but forgotten given subsequent events, but an early point where DP seemed to be misleading its customers while leaning on Roger Sharpe's image), but subject was dropped. Barry seemed more animated about the path forward, which I suppose is a good thing.
